I think Ronald Baatz is one of America’s finest poets. I know that many will agree with me when I say so. You probably know Baatz already but if you don’t you should read this book as an introduction, since it is as good as his other books, and they set a very high standard. A book consisting of fifty beautiful, short poems with birds as the central theme.

I don’t know how many times I have read these wonderful poems during the process of putting this book together but still I like to have the book close by or in my pocket when travelling. I love these minimalist poems.

I think this chapbook will one day come to be regarded as somewhat of a classic – a chapbook that people later will try to locate, only to find that a mere 225 copies were made and all are gone.

Ronald Baatz is not so keen on writing about himself or on metrying to present him. He wrote once: ”the only bio i ever give is that i’ve been living in the same farmhouse close to twenty years.” Here at Kamini Press we are very proud to present the fourth chapbook in our poetry series.
